Please bear with me as I have only just started my web site and am still in the process of adding new material every day I have a large amount of data on the Doe/Jeff/Cooper/Barnes/Barney and Keets family as they are local Romany families and form part of my line of reseach and so it will take a while to get it all up on the site please keep looking as I do add info daily.

 The above pictures kindly given me by Steve doe and Eileen Smith and Annie Cooper( used with their permission)

 It would seem the first time  the Doe family were recorded in the Census for Dorset was 1881, where they were camped in tents with Walter Jeff and  family (who were in Dorset earlier as shown below) however, the Doe family were in Dorset long before 1881 and interestingly using the same alias as used by the Jeff family as " Ananias Doe was born 26 May 1850 at Gipsy Camp, Gallows Hill Bere Regis, Dorset" the same place as the Jeff family were camped in the 1871 Census,of course they could have been here before, but annoyingly in earlier Census when the enumerator wasen't obliged to put the details of Gypsies or Travellers so there is at the bottom of the page a tantalizing entry like "30 Gypsies camped along the roadside"or "6 men 6 women 23 children" in open air "Gypsies" so maybe they were among them?. Remember transcribed as THEY spelt it.
